This expert study provides a concise summary of the differences between Japanese and Western strategic management and other forms of management. The study also describes the spread of management theories and practices between Japan and the USA at different times. The expert study concludes by considering why and how Japan and the West could benefit from developing each other's management doctrines together, rather than merely transferring knowledge and practices in one direction as was done in the past.
The study is based on e-mail interviews with two world-renowned Japanese professors and an American professor who have worked in Japan for a long time, and seven Finnish business leaders who have worked in Japanese or in Finnish companies in Japan for a long time.
The webinar is targeted to entrepreneurs, managers, directors, consultants, and academicians who want to understand better Japanese strategic management and leadership and how they differ from the Western one. Also, for policy and other decision makers who decide funding of management and leadership research between Japan and the West.
